Róisín Ní Riain has finished seventh in the SB13 100m breaststroke final at the Tokyo Paralympics.
The 16-year-old, swimming out of lane two, had a huge amount to do on the turn to get into the medal frame and though she never challenged the top three, the Limerick teenager did produce a strong last 50 metres.
It was a solid showing and yet another PB from Ní Riain, who made five finals out of the six events she contested and will head for Paris in three years' time with real hopes of picking up a medal.
"I'm very pleased with that race, it was faster than this morning, another PB so I can’t complain about that and I’m very happy," she said.
"Looking back, I think it’s been amazing. I’ve loved every minute of it and tried to take it all in, and overall it’s been a pretty amazing experience you know, to be part of the Paralympic Games."
